The Spirit of Propeller
The Spirit of Propeller is a nonprofit organization focused on youth development. It received its nonprofit status in 1986.
The purpose of the Spirit of Propeller is to provide youth development and maritime training opportunities for Sea Scouts and all other youth in the greater Seattle Area. We own and operate the Youth Training Vessel "Propeller" as well as a fleet of sailing vessels to accomplish our training goals.
The Sea Scout Ship Propeller's current youth membership of 18 young men and women are following in the long tradition of our seafaring alumni. Our alumni include Navy and Coast Guard Admirals, Captains, Commanders and enlisted personal. Many have graduated from Maritime academies and are working (or have worked) in the commercial sector as captains, engineers and deckhands.
Since 1957, the Sea Scout Ship Propeller and her crew have facilitated the transportation of over 21,500 Boy Scouts and their leaders to camps, islands and fun locations all around Puget Sound.
Each year, our youth participants provide over 2650 hours of Community Service hours. We provided a Holiday Christmas Cruise for 115 Special Needs people, collected more than 640 cubic feet of recyclables at the SeaFair Hydro Race Log Boom, Supported Port of Seattle “High School Career Day and Fall Fisherman’s Festival, assisted "The Mission to Seafarers" in packaging "Ditty Bags" gifts for distribution to merchant mariners aboard ships in port during the
